Forest Park Day Centre

What does it do?

We care for the elderly in a friendly atmosphere and homely surroundings.
Whilst recognising their special needs, we place great importance in respecting our members as individuals and aim for them to feel comfortable and at ease.
The Day Centre is in a quiet residential setting. The building was purpose built to be secure while allowing the elderly the freedom that they would expect in their own homes.
There is also a very pleasant, small enclosed garden which is well used by our members in the warmer months.

Activities include: singing, music and entertainers, reminiscence therapy, social games and bingo, arts and crafts and armchair exercise.

Members are usually collected and returned to their own home in our mini-bus, which has a low step and a wheelchair lift. All journeys are escorted by one of our regular team of trained carers who assists members on and off the vehicle and into the building.

Who it is for?

The Centre was set up by Age Concern Bracknell Forest to provide a service for elderly people who are mentally confused and living within the area of Bracknell Forest Borough Council.

Where it is available?

Local service (Bracknell Forest).

How to access or apply for it:
